As a member of the Workers' Compensation Department, Robin focuses her practice on the defense of workers' compensation matters. She represents self-insureds, including temporary employment agencies, warehouses, hospitals and businesses, as well as major insurance carriers and third-party administrators.

Robin partners with employers, brokers and third-party administrators, placing a high priority on consistent communication to best serve the interests of all parties. She tailors her results-driven approach to a client's specific needs, whether it involves litigating a case to conclusion or working toward an early resolution, and she is always mindful of their bottom line. 

With more than 20 years of experience practicing exclusively in workers' compensation in the Philadelphia area, Robin has earned a favorable reputation among her peers, judges and the claimant's bar. 

Robin is a graduate of Dickinson College, and she received her juris doctor from T.C. Williams School of Law in Richmond, Virginia. She is a member of RIMS and the National Retail and Restaurant Defense Association. She is the former vice president and original master of the Judge Alexander F. Barbieri Workers' Compensation American Inn of Court, and she served as a past co-chair for the Workers' Compensation Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
